Do what you love doing. You can earn money doing what you love.

Do what you love doing

There are lots of different mantras out there about how to bring about personal or business success. Once you’ve read as many books as you can you will come to realise that nearly every ‘Guru’ out there is pretty much telling you the same thing but in their own flavour. The question often comes down to ‘Which flavour do you like?’

If I was to offer a simple flavour, it would be the ‘Love What you Do’ flavour.

Doing what everyone else expects from you, or doing something because its easy to do, or you think it can make you some money may well bring you success in some ways, but it will NOT bring you happiness.

If you want Happiness in every aspect of your personal and business life, you need to do just one thing: ‘Do What you love Doing’, even if it scares the living crap out of you.

Love what you do.

Love what you do.

Simple principle for creating success in leadership

What do you think of this principle for creating success in leadership?

If you want to be truly great, you must have these 3 people in your life:

1. A person who is older and more successful than you to learn from.
2. A person who is equal to you to exchange ideas with.
3. A person with less skills than you to coach and keep you sharp.

what does your business do?

“What Does your Business Do?”

Too many times, at networking events, when I ask new business owners the question, “What do you do?”, I brace myself because I know I am about to hear their life story. Please don’t do that people!

what does your business do?

Describe your business simply by explaining the benefits and as shortly as you can.

As Einstein allegedly said, ‘If you can’t describe what you do in one sentence, you don’t yet fully understand what you do’.When I first started in business, I was exactly like that too with bags full of enthusiasm and passion but I know now that I made an assumption that nearly all new business owners make. I thought others would be just as passionate about my business as me. Eventually, when I started talking less and with more impact, they would be.

Clients want to know how you can make their world better. If they can see that, then they’ll share your enthusiasm.

Here’s a few tips to make sure you don’t bore the pants off people. They’re often too polite to tell you.

  1. Talk about How you can help them.
  2. Most people care about how you can help them rather than what you do.
  3. Talk to them emotively.
  4. Don’t use jargon. Please!
  5. Tell them Why you do what do you rather than What. Somebody is already doing What you are doing.
  6. If they like your Why, they will ask you for more information and actually be listening.
Here are a few examples of what I say to my prospects or fellow business leaders.
  • “We help to create better leaders”
  • “We help leaders build and grow their business”
  • “We help businesses sell more”
  • “We introduce businesses to new diverse markets”

Try it out and let me know how you go.
